Coe: Bid teams are right to do their research on opponents

Lord Coe has told ITV that the England 2018 World Cup bidding team were right to look into opposing bids.

Having lost out to Russia for the tournament in 2018, the bid team will reportedly be questioned for creating a dossier on opponents.

The former athlete said the London 2012 bid, which he led, was successful thanks to the level of research they did, stating that they won the Olympics as the team 'knew what the landscape looked like'.
